Hey high schooler.
I know you’ve noticed that our country is a mess. The anger and hate has grown to the point of boiling over . It reminds me of this scene in Ghostbusters where the angrier the people get, the more the evil slime grew. Soon it was taking over…… https://youtu.be/1y8Rqvz-Jcg.
I have a cousin who recently disowned me; not because “I” support the wrong presidential candidate, but because a sister of mine does. (Talk about anger…..you should have seen the text he sent me).
As a nation, we are stuck having to vote for the lesser of two evils. One candidate is a big bully who thinks two Corinthians is the name of a book in the Bible. He also claims to be very religious even after demoralizing women and calling them ugly dogs. The other is a documented liar whose faith somehow doesn’t discourage abortions. She preaches about income quality right after getting fitted for her $10,000 Armani suit.
At this point son, I am at a loss…… Has our great country become so bad that these 2 candidates are the best we have to represent us to the rest of the world? The current President ran on promises that he was going to bring the country together, but his words and actions have only drawn us further apart. The two candidates we have to pick from now are going to make it worse.
Many have little hope, but fortunately I still have mine! My hope comes from God. My hope comes from reading the Bible. My hope comes from the fact that in the grand scheme of things, our time here dealing with all this crap is very short. You see bud, when you compare eternity vs. the time we live on earth, our human life seems like a vapor. Poof and it’s over!
When you put things in perspective you can see what is most important. Always remember the end of your time here on earth is the beginning of eternity in a place nothing like your life in Chandler, AZ, United States of America. It can either mark the beginning of forever somewhere much worse than you could ever imagine, or it could be the start of eternity in a place far better than you could ever earn or deserve. Many will be lost, and some will find their way. The wide road to eternity is easy to drive, but it leads you to the wrong place. Choose the narrow less traveled road my boy!
The only way we will turn things around and save the USA is through revival. As a nation, once the greatest nation on earth, we need to turn back to God and ask Him for help and forgiveness. We need to turn back to the instructions He left us in his Word. I don’t have much hope that as a whole it is going to happen, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try!
This our our mission………..its up to you to choose to accept it.
I love you son!
James 4: 14: Whereas you know not what shall be tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away
